Zusammenfassung

Pigmentbildende gramnegative Stäbchenbakterien haben in den letzten Jahren als gefährliche Infektionserreger zunehmend klinische Bedeutung erlangt. Die wichtigsten Keime dieser Gruppe sind in der Reihenfolge ihrer Häufigkeit: Serratia marcescens, Erwinia herbicola, Flavobacterium spp. und Chromobacterium violaceum.
